Book Description:

In an innovative and experimental format, Griselda Pollock provides another new impetus in ways of thinking and writing about the visual arts.

Neither cybernetic nor etherised, Encounters in the Virtual Feminist Museum is a poetic laboratory breaking the museum s rigid rules to create encounters with and between images by and about women as they engaged with and were defined by modernity. Tracking the complex relays between femininity, modernity and representation by means of a sequence of virtual exhibitions, this book reframes art in the twentieth century with women in mind. Initially exploring how modernist women engaged creatively with the legacies of western art s prime representation of femininity the nude female body the book also contemplates the traumatic rupture scorched into the culture of the West by the Holocaust. What can be the function of art after the atrocity inflicted on bodies by Nazi terror and mass murder? What can feminist theory and aesthetic practice contribute to the debates about art after Auschwitz?

In our era of Liquid Modernity with its dizzyingly accelerating pace of change, how can art making working with media such as painting and drawing call upon us to take time, and reclaim the meaning of time times of making, times of viewing, times of thinking?

Calling upon both the Freudian museum and Aby Warburg s Memory Atlas as resources for feminist cultural analysis, this book is another major contribution to contemporary art history and cultural studies.
